    Alien3, I can at least sit through, understand what's going on and make my decisions regarding acting, style, writing, etc. based on what I'm looking at.

    Prometheus, on the other hand, is just a visual mess that has (at least!) 3 different story lines going on simultaneously, the acting and direction convey nothing that's helpful in furthering the movie. None of those story lines ever really come together.

      Two was great. Except there was no reason for Ripley to flame the egg chamber. She was wasting time and the whole place was going to blow up anyway. Just an excuse for Mamma to chase her and end up the ship. They should have thought of something more logical.

      Loved the battle between Mamma and Ridley, though. Definitely in the collection of great movie lines of all time: "Get away from her, you bitch!

      Freedom has two enemies: Those who want to control everyone around them...and those who feel no need to control themselves.
